French Bread

Number of Servings: 4
My Yacht Name: Ad Astra
Yacht Manufacturer: Island Packet
Ingredients: 1 pkg dry yeast 1/4 C luke warm water 1 C boiling water 1 Tblsp Butter 2 tsp Salt 1 Tblsp Sugar 3/4 C Cold water about 6 C flour oil 1 egg white beaten
Directions: Sprinkle 1 pkg dry yeast on 1/4 c luke warm water in a small bowl. Let stand 5 minutes and stir until dissolved. Pour 1 C boiling water over 1 Tblsp butter, 2 tsp salt, & 1 tblsp sugar in a large bowl. Add 3/4 C cold water, stir and let cool until lukewarm. Stir in yeast. Gradually beat in enough flour to form a stiff dough (6 c more or less). Turn out on a floured board and knead until smooth and satiny, adding more flour if necessary. Dump in a large greased bowl, oil the top, cover with a towel and let rise until double in bulk. Beat down and shape into two oblong loaves about 14" long. Place on a greased baking sheet and let rise until double. Beat 1 egg white frothy and brush the tops of the loaves. With a razor make 3 slashed across tops. Bake at 425 deg for 30 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 deg and bake 20 minutes more until well browned. Break bread away from pans to cool.
Comments: Our daughter made this version of French bread when we couldn't get the real thing. It was every bit as tasty as that you can buy on the French islands of the Caribbean and much better than you get on the English island. It really wasn't as hard as it sounds. Try it, you'll like it!
